Observation 180744: Leucopholiota decorosa (Peck) O.K. Mill., T.J. Volk & Bessette

When: 2014-09-28

Collection location: Frances Slocum State Park, Luzerne Co., Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dave W (Dave W)

No specimen available

The only other time I saw one of these which was this large and with such well-developed scales on the cap was at the NAMA foray in West Virginia, 2007. Similar to the current conditions occurring here at present, the weather at the 2007 foray was also extremely dry.

Sheath on stipe somewhat flattened on account of much handling. (Mushroom collected/displayed at “Mushroom Fair.”)

I have collected small less impressive specimens locally.
